If you are looking for assistance to help you through the grieving process, Don and Karen Clifford's Heavenly Grief: A Christian Guide to Spiritual and Emotional Healing (paperback, 978-1-60477-681-2) is a must-have for your bookshelf. The lifelong Christians' marriage and faith have survived the loss of three of their living children, and because of their total dependence on God during the multiple losses, they began to learn things about surviving grief that aren't covered in textbooks. They not only learned how to survive the losses, but also how to recover in a reasonable time and return to a joyous Christian life. They simply learned--sometimes through trial and error--to avail themselves of the helps and comforts God provides.
Say the co-authors of the book, "It is the most positive book on grief on the market and it should be in every pastor and counselor's personal library, in every church media center, and on every Christian bookstore's shelves. We don't know anyone else who has lost three living children and come through it strengthened in their faith. It is worth sharing with others how God helped us through it all."
As lifelong Christians and Bible teachers, the couple is able to analyze their experiences in the view of biblical teachings and apply them to helping others. Despite what they have been through, the joyous, happy authors have found peace in the strength of God and hope to lead others to do similarly. "We hope we can help make the grieving less painful and more hopeful and reduce the time it takes to get through it," the authors say. "Our desire is to give comfort and encouragement to grieving individuals."
